Jane Coop’s beautiful music kicks off Concert Series

Jane Coop is performing at the Bonnington Arts Centre on October 20.

Elegant, experienced and brilliant are words to describe pianist Jane Coop.  Renowned for her highly appealing performance style, she is considered Canada’s premier Mozart interpreter by The Calgary Herald and has consistently been praised for her capacity to graciously carry the sensitivity and spirit of the music she plays right to her audience. Appreciative audiences in New York, London, St. Petersburg, Warsaw, Prague, Tokyo and many major venues in Canada have been thrilled by her artistry.

A respected soloist, Jane has worked with eminent conductors such as Sir Andrew Davis, Sir John Eliot Gardiner, Rudolf Barshai and with orchestras around the world. Also a successful chamber artist, she has worked with many esteemed Canadian and international musicians and continues to perform in recital throughout Canada and internationally.

Ms. Coop’s major teachers were Anton Kuerti and Leon Fleisher. Rounding out her significant contribution to Canadian music, Jane was recently bestowed the title Distinguished University Scholar by the University of British Columbia where she serves as Professor of Piano and Chamber Music. A class act in every sense, Jane Coop’s musicianship is timeless.
